    The Hill ^ | 06/22/18 | Mallory Shelbourne
    Virginia Sens. Mark Warner (D) and Tim Kaine (D) have questioned the Trump administration following an explosive report in The Associated Press detailing abuse allegations against a detention facility in their state. The AP on Friday reported that Kaine and Warner sent inquiries about the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center to the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement’s director. Warner and Kaine asked if employees who take part in abusing the young migrants receive disciplinary action and inquired about prior accusations, the report said. The AP on Thursday reported that a lawsuit filed against the facility includes abuse allegations from young Latino...
  • Vanity - Vote for Republican/Conservative, Corey Stewart for Senate in Virginia.

    06/15/2018 7:11:00 PM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 25 replies
    Corey Stewart is the Republican candidate facing "Dim Bulb" Democrat, Senator Tim Kaine for the Senate seat in Virginia. I have no doubt that Stewart will run a terrific, pro-active, effective campaign against the failed, Hillary Clinton, VP choice..."the well known, asleep at the wheel, deadbeat, Democrat, Tim Kaine". Rumblings are heard that the Establishment GOP Senate campaign group will not fund the Stewart race. It's hard to believe....but Stewart can defeat Tim Kaine. It's amazing, because if Stewart takes down Kaine early in the evening of election day, the entire country (who will still be voting) will witness a...

    @realDonaldTrump Congratulations to Corey Stewart for his great victory for Senator from Virginia. Now he runs against a total stiff, Tim Kaine, who is weak on crime and borders, and wants to raise your taxes through the roof. Don’t underestimate Corey, a major chance of winning! 2:55 AM - 13 Jun 2018

    WASHINGTON — Prince William County Board Chair Corey Stewart, a bombastic supporter of President Donald Trump, has won the Virginia GOP primary in the U.S. Senate race in a narrow victory over Virginia Del. Nick Freitas. The hard-right firebrand now faces Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine, the Democrats’ 2016 vice presidential nominee and former Virginia governor, who is seeking a second term. Speaking to his supporters gathered Tuesday night in Warrenton, Virginia, Freitas conceded the race and pledged to support Stewart in the general election. The race between Stewart and Freitas remained close throughout the night as ballots were counted. The...

    Richmond Times-Dispatch ^ | April 19, 2018 | Patrick Wilson
    LYNCHBURG — GOP U.S. Senate candidate Nick Freitas in a debate on Thursday called out rival Corey Stewart’s campaign for making ethnic jokes about his name. Stewart responded that if a little name-calling got under Freitas’ skin, he would be thrashed by Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine should he be the GOP nominee in the general election. The scrap came toward the end of a lively debate at Liberty University featuring Stewart, Freitas and minister E.W. Jackson of Chesapeake, who are competing in the June 12 primary. The candidates discussed foreign policy, defended President Donald Trump and the tax cut he...

    On Tuesday's 'Morning Joe' on MSNBC, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine warned that Democrats would view any attempt by the president to fire Robert Mueller or signal plans to issue pardons "as the president pushing the nation into a constitutional crisis." (snip) BRZEZINSKI: So the president calls this a witch hunt. He says they didn't find anything. And he really was quite defensive yesterday about -- that this was a sad situation and he's not sure whether or not Mueller will be fired. Are you concerned that this investigation could be thwarted? KAINE: Yes. I think the president is clearly panicked....

    The Daily Caller ^ | January 7, 2018 | JulieGrace Brufke
    Republicans are anxious to unseat former vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine from his Virginia Senate seat in November, and top conservatives in the upper chamber have been quick to throw their support behind Del. Nick Freitas in his quest to secure the GOP nomination. Just weeks after announcing his bid, Freitas — a libertarian-leaning Republican, former Green Beret and father of three — has already managed to lock down the endorsement of Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and receive campaign guidance from Utah Sen. Mike Lee after touting his legislative record and dedication to upholding the Constitution. “Being able to get...

    Nick Freitas, the liberty-minded conservative who is challenging Senator Tim Kaine in Virginia, has just been endorsed by Senator Rand Paul — who referred to the former Green Beret as “the real deal.” The Gateway Pundit spoke to Freitas following the endorsement to find out more about where he stands on the issues. “Nick Freitas is the real deal and I urge liberty conservatives and those who believe in the constitution and limited government to rally to his cause and campaign,” Senator Paul said in a statement provided to the Gateway Pundit on Friday. “Through his involvement in politics and...

    For Democrats, any excuse to open the immigration floodgates is good. Take Hillary’s failed VP running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, and his response to the Iran protests. Of all the ways the United States could support the protesters, what pops into Kaine’s cranium? Yup, as Kaine tweeted [emphasis added]: “Big step US could take to support democracy movement in Iran: Drop the Iranian travel ban.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine’s youngest son has been placed on probation and ordered to pay $236 in fines and fees in connection with his arrest following a rally for President Donald Trump in Minnesota. Linwood “Woody” Kaine, of Minneapolis, was among eight people arrested in the St. Paul rally in March. He pleaded guilty to a charge of obstructing the legal process and received a 90-day sentence, with 86 days suspended. He served four days in jail.

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) claims the attacker who opened fire on Las Vegas concert goers was only stopped “because he didn’t have a silencer on his weapon.” According to the Washington Post, Kaine asked, “Can you imagine what this would have been if he had silencers on those weapons?” His use of the word “silencer” is an echo of other leftists like Rosanne Cash and Gabby Giffords, both of whom use the word “silencer” to describe suppressors.

    Democrat Tim Kaine, who -- and people forget this -- is a member of the United States Senate who ran on Hillary Clinton's ticket last in fall's election (look it up!), weighed in on the gun control debate that is raging the aftermath of Sunday night's horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas.  In a very special attempt to link his opposition to a Republican proposal to ease federal restrictions on gun suppressors to the massacre, Kaine explained how he believes local authorities were able to put an end to the shooter's reign of terror.  Just so we're clear, this person...

    The son of U.S. senator and former vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine made his first court appearance Tuesday on allegations he was among a group of protesters who disrupted a rally in support of President Donald Trump at the Minnesota State Capitol in March. Linwood “Woody” Kaine stood with his hands clasped behind his back while his attorney, John Michael Barham, addressed the judge during the brief hearing in Ramsey County District Court. The parties quickly agreed on a date for Kaine’s next court appearance before the judge excused them. The 25-year-old had his long hair pulled back into a...

    WASHINGTON — Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine says he does not know much about members of so-called “anti-fascist” groups but says it is unfair to paint them with a broad brush. When asked by The Daily Caller Thursday if “antifa” should be considered a terrorist organization, Kaine replied: “I don’t like broad brushes and I don’t know enough about them to say that they’re terrorists but people who do violent things. The law should take care of them.” The Department of Homeland Security has called the activities of Antifa “domestic terrorist violence,” according to Politico. Kaine’s son, Linwood, was...

    Corey Stewart, the former Virginia state chairman for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, is running for office again just one month after nearly becoming the Republican nominee in Virginia’s gubernatorial race. Now Stewart is running for the Senate against Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine. Stewart lost the GOP gubernatorial primary in Virginia to Ed Gillespie by a little over a percentage point in June. The former Trump campaign operative ran a very Trumpian campaign in that race, earning a lot of attention for his support of Confederate monuments and strong stances against illegal immigration. He plans on running on a...

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D., Va.) told reporters on Tuesday that the Russia investigation is potentially moving into a "treason" investigation after reports surfaced of Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer last summer. In the wake of New York Times reports on Trump Jr. and other Trump campaign officials meeting with a Russian attorney who they believed had damaging information about Hillary Clinton, Kaine said the probe into obstruction of justice could evolve into something more serious. "Nothing is proven yet, but we're now beyond obstruction of justice in terms of what's being investigated," Kaine said. "This is moving...

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) said this afternoon that he now sees Robert Mueller's Russia investigation as a probe into possible "treason." Kaine and others on Capitol Hill reacted this afternoon to the latest revelations about a meeting last June between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer. Earlier today, Trump Jr. released what he said was the “entire email chain” of conversations setting up the meeting with attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya. In the email chain, Trump Jr. expresses interest in obtaining damaging information on Hillary Clinton. Kaine, who was Clinton's running mate last year, said the new reports take the probe...
